Words for thought:

  3. I read The Dark Days Club earlier this year. I think you will like it!

    I have yet to pick up any Ruth Ware, but I really want to. I have been hankering lately for a page turning, satisfying thriller (which I hope her books will be).

    1. This will be my first Ruth Ware novel, too; I'll let you know if I like it. And I'm really looking forward to reading The Dark Days Club...even more so now knowing you enjoyed it. :)

  4. Not a big hiker but to get to see snow in July, I'd hike. It's beautiful!

  8. Beautiful shots. My son is currently out hiking. That brat always forgets to text me and tell me he's still alive!

  9. Lovely pictures--wild flowers are such a reward for hiking, as is snow in July! I would like to read Anne Frank Remembered too. Happy reading.

  10. Gorgeous photos!

    I just ordered THE LYING GAME. I can't wait to read it. I really liked Bethany Wiggins dystopian novels, but I didn't realize she had a new book out. Dragons/fantasy isn't really my jam, but I think I'll check it out anyway. Thanks for the heads-up!

    1. My copy of The Lying Game just arrived in the mail today. :D Any day with new books in it is a great day. (And I'll have to check out Bethany Wiggins dystopian novels.)

  11. I loved Anne Frank Remembered. I keep debating whether or not I want to own a copy. Miep was an amazing lady. I loved Bethany Wiggins' book "Shifting," but didn't like "Stung" as much. Let me know if you like the dragon book. Also, I am looking forward to hearing what you think of The Lying Game. It's on my TBR list, after having read The Woman In Cabin 10. Happy Reading!!
